Furniture should be stored in a dry steady temperature area, 60-80 degrees. Drastic temperature changes can cause wood to expand and contract which over time could impact the look and strength of the piece. Items should be stored away from light and covered with cloth or blanket coverings to allow the wood to breath. Wrapping solid wood with plastic may cause moisture to become trapped around the items and could result in mold or mildew. Make sure to store product off floor by placing it on padded blocking or pallets.
